Base Profit

I've been a long running fan of GURPS for a long time.

I think it will now be a cold day in Hell before Steve Jackson sees another penny from me.

On March 13th he says:
See, this is why we need better medicine. Need better medicine NOW. Need better medicine YEARS ago. Not the stupid, piggish American insurance-profit-driving system, and not the earnest British "Get in line, it's cheap and you get what you pay for" system, and not the "Sorry, nothing can be done, lie down and die now" system that so much of the world suffers under, but actual medicine.

Piggish American insurance profit driven system, Steve?  So you don't believe someone should be paid for the services rendered?

On March 16th though...
I will not be appearing at Chi-Fi, due to bad communications and non-payment. If you had hoped to see me at that show, I'm very sorry - but the con chair is no longer returning my calls or mail, I haven't even been reimbursed for the plane ticket, and the only other committee member I have ever spoken to could do nothing but refer me back to the chair. I don't know what's going on there, but it will be without me.
I see.  It's OK for YOU to make money, but not for THEM to make money.

Fuck you Mr Jackson.
